Well this brings up and interesting question what happens for people like me who have EA Play Pro on the PC, seems like nothing. I have EA Play on the Xbox for the sole reason I forgot I had it and got charged so it seems like that will auto cancel and go into my XGPU subscription.

Speaking of which how do I see when that subscription ends and anyone see any deals on extending it? :)
On your xbox go to settings,account,subsciptions and that has ultimate and ea play expiration dates listed there.

Wow. This is almost too good to be true. I'll have probably nine months of EA Play left by the holidays, so I'm getting 27 free months of Ultimate? Am I reading that right?

Mother of Mercy, Microsoft either really loves its gamers or wants to strike hard at Sony in this generation. Both, probably!

MS has a long term strategy that I think is going to work really well for them.

Also thanks for calling out that part. My EA Play on the Xbox just renewed in August. So if that is correct my XBox game pass ultimate will extend for 18 months. Holy s***!

I already took advantage of that stupendous matching deal offered by Microsoft to upgrade from Gold to Ultimate about 1.5 years ago, as I got Ultimate paid up through something like June 2021 for an extra $10 or something like that. Now if I'm reading this EA Play deal correctly, I may not need to resubscribe to Ultimate until late 2023.

SCORE!

I'm not signed up for EA Play. Is it too late to extend my GPU for another year?

My ea play expired last month and my ultimate expires in August 2022 so if I'm understanding everything right and I buy a year of ea access before it is included with gamepass for free, when it does become free with gamepass my ea play should then get converted to an extra year of ultimate expiring in 2023 which would be a great deal at 25 bucks for an extra year of live and ultimate.

Love it! I just renewed my EA Play a few weeks ago. I presume that equates to like 10 more months of GPU? If so - GIDDYUP.

Hotshot racer has been added (just released game). It's a retro arcade racer and I think Sega has something to do with this game. I have problems with drifting but that might be just me getting used to the controls.

If you guys like turn based RPG's a few landed on GP. Disgaea 4 complete, Star Renegades and The Dark Crystal (kinda reminds me of Battle Chasers Nightwar).

Played this last night. Very, very fun! Yeah, I'm more of a sim racer, but I do enjoy a balls-to-the-wall arcade game every so often.

Teal nailed the vibe of this game: It's the offspring of a one-nighter between Ridge Racer and Daytona USA. Good fun!

Sounds cool, will definitely check it out. My boys and I have put a decent amount of time into Horizon Chase Turbo on the Switch, so this could be right up our alley!

Ok, I am confused now. My Ultimate gamepass doesn’t expire until mid 2022 and I just got an email from MS that my EA play subscription is about to expire in two weeks, so it was a reminder to renew.

Do I go ahead and renew EA pass and with that, Ultimate gamepass gets an extension or the merger passes takes into effect right now?

Anyone?

My EA Play just renewed, like, Friday. Ugh. But, reading the linked article, my understanding is that 1/3 of my remaining EA Play time will be added on to my GamePass sub. It still seems a little generous, as a year of EA Play is $30 and a year of GamePass is $120.

It makes sense to me that they’d simply transfer the monetary value of however much EA Play you have left into GamePass subscription extension.

Thanks for reading and explaining that so my confused lazy ass didnt have to. Good deal as mine renewed end of July.

When are you joining us for some Dragons? We need Power Play help as we had what was like a 1 for 20 stretch against the NES hockey tribute team last night.

Now i’m confused about this EA Play thing. I went to download FIFa 20 which I thought was part of the Vault and it only gave me the option of trial play or to buy. I downloaded the EA Play app and it asks if I want to join.

The EA-XBL fusion doesn't happen until the holidays, I think.

A new game just came out on Game Pass. It's called Katana Zero. It's a mix between Hotline Miami and part Castlevania. You die real easy if you're not careful.

Good but VERY short. This is a MP-focused title. The SP was thrown in as an afterthought.

Siege was the most disappointing R6 title for me in a decade. The MP is so "rinse, wash and repeat." One team barricades and booby-traps the area they're protecting. Then they set up defensive positions to wait for the attack. The attackers then try to use surprise -- pretty tough on these tight maps -- or overwhelming force to overcome them.

You will get SLAUGHTERED in MP if you get placed into a group with hardcore vets of this game. Their characters are built to the max because this game has been so popular with the eSports and Mountain Dew punk kid crowd for so long.

Plus I've played no MP game with more horsesh*t fratricide among randoms. Once a lot of "clans" or groups identify you as a teammate who is an "outsider," they won't waste one second killing you to get rid of you.
